Fred, it looks like the spots are lumpy or undulated on the surface. Is that the case? Might have been somebody tried to fill the stone on the job?

client said the stone came that way..The areas appear very smooth. They also react with acid. Under a microscope they look smooth. my guess is that they are factory fills.

I did a job with that material and the supplier did say they used fillers in certain pieces. At least the supplier my customer got the material from used a tan filler that blended nicely with the background.
